RE: Porsche Question

OMG, deathrattle! Shlomo needed rear swaybar bushings once and they were $14.00 *each* [:p]

I don't know how they expect anyone to drive a car so expensive to fix as a 240D, I mean.... gah.. [V][:p]

I am contemplating purchasing an older Porsche. I don't want to spend more than $25,000. Does anybody have any experience with these cars?, i.e. a Boxster from 2000 - 2003, or an older 911? How do they hold up?

I have not really done too much research, just the beginning steps. Any thoughts?
Don't! 911 mystique is undeserved! I had a very low mile 944 Turbo that was VERY problematic. I had a very low mile 928S4 that was problematic. Everyone told me the 911's are best and give up on the front engine porsche shit, so I bought a new 911 cab in '95 and it was problematic. You see a trend here?

As far as I am concerned a Ferrari is not much worse than this VW built shit. And yes VW and porsche are and have always been joined at the hip. Like the difference between toyota and Lexus. So just buy the Italian trash cause you know it is gonna suck, but the bitches and kiddos think it is much cooler than the porsche and you will like the silly status.

Otherwise just buy a used Lexus SC400 or SL600 and don't fall for the "legend" of the 911 as it is for suckers.

Such common taste, mbzer; can you not think of a better Volkswagen than such a humdrum 'modded' Ghia?

RE: Porsche Question

Porsches are excellent cars, the 911 is the longest production model in history, in fact one even won Dakar with minimum modifications, bigger tires was the greatest visual mod.
Porsches are about the only high performance car that you can depend as a daily driver and/or grand tour car and make easily the 200K mark, they are built tough like no other and they are no afraid of high RPM's all day long, with more than 33,000 wins in major events is the most successful marquee in the racing world and the bread and butter of GT racers.

I had a couple over the last 5 years, bought them new, the second one was an upgrade, dependable and never a problem, true to the dictum they are good to get you in trouble, my second one spent 7 months in the shop after some spirited driving. Just in case the encounter is what did it in.

The Boxter is an excellent car contrary to what the purists say, anyway by now it has shut their mouths as the car has proven itself, the only drawback is that the earliest Boxters had a 2,7 L engine and it was not a rocket from the starting lane but an excellent all around handler like all Porsches, go for an S model, anyway the speed limit is 70 and if you want to BLVD drag race there is always going to be a bigger gun, so I would not let that kind of silly thing bother me, just find you one with a god service record and enjoy it.

Your emotional outburst is not backed up by the vast weight of statistics relating to 911 reliability and customer satisfaction.
